The latest 4th grade science project for Hunter (and parents!) was the making of Mt. Rainier. Hunter also completed a research paper on Mt. Rainier. As you can see it was a multi step process and project. Nathan and Hunter spent a few nights figuring out the best combination to make it erupt…which ended up being a baking soda, vinegar and Coke. However, Hunter had so much fun with planning the eruption that last week after it was over and completed we still were watching him toss Mentos into bottles of Coke to watch those erupt too. Hunter scolded me more than once that the Mentos left on the kitchen counter are NOT for me to eat.
